The Australian star, who split from cricketer Warne around the same time he started dating Liz Hurley, said that although she was drawn to Roberts's "energy and attraction", she did not realise that they would end up developing such a strong connection.
Callahan told Woman's Day magazine: "I think [Shane] thought this might have been a relationship that would be all over pretty quickly." Roberts also revealed that he held back when he first met Callahan because she was still hurting from the end of her marriage, saying: "I didn't want to plunge headlong into things because I knew you and Shane were very much together late last year.
"It's nobody's business, but that's all absolute rubbish, just for the record," he told .
"I'm just a man trying to do the best I possibly can." Michelle, 42, has also dismissed the romance reports, confirming on Twitter last week that she had been single for the past 18 months.
"FTR (for the record) I'd never ever meet a guy if he was taken.
It was done to me and I remember that pain," she wrote.
Warne admits that he “wasn’t a very good husband” to ex-wife Simone, mother of his three children Brooke, 18, Jackson, 16 and Summer, 14. Now they get boxes at the cricket, they get their own bus, the boards look after them.”Admitting he was “selfish”, Warne says “cricket was my number one priority and nothing was going to get in the way of me becoming the best cricketer I possibly could.”The leg-spinner started out as an Aussie Rules footballer and only got properly into cricket when he took part in a 1989 exchange programme at St Kilda Cricket Club in Melbourne to spend a summer playing at Imperial Cricket Club in Bristol.
We’re still good friends.”You can understand why Warne’s mantra is that “perception does not always equal reality.” Self-effacing and thoughtful, he appears far from his tabloidised bad boy image of a beer-guzzling, hell-raising womaniser. “I’m not very complicated, no.” Warne’s “Ladies Man” credentials were clocked up as quickly as his wickets in the 1990s with kiss-and-tell stories hitting the headlines as frequently as his deliveries struck the stumps.
Despite recently reuniting with Elizabeth Hurley outside her London home, the Australian cricketer confirmed that he is currently not in a relationship with his ex fiancée during a round of Australian interviews this week.
"Elizabeth and I are sill friends and we catch up when we can," Shane told The former sportsman, 44, later addressed recent rumours in the press that he had spent four hours in Ultimo millionaire Michelle Mone's hotel room on 16 February.
A useful lower-order batsman, Warne also scored over 3000 Test runs also the only player to have scored 3000 test runs without a career century, and he holds the record for most Test runs without a century(3154).
His career was plagued by scandals off the field; these included a ban from cricket for testing positive for a prohibited substance, charges of bringing the game into disrepute by accepting money from bookmakers, and sexual indiscretions.
